Her goal is to introduce gardeners to a list of well-behaved wildflowers that conform to.   The book was written to help gardeners find easy ways to grow their own native plants. As the author states: This book is designed, first, to give you a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of gardening with native plant material and, second, to provide specific information on the propagation and cultivation of some genera of native plants.
